Vox Lux

Vox Lux ★★★★½

immediate thoughts:

a narratively engrossing and conceptually fearless pop portrait, kinda like a star is born's twisted evil step sister, as well as an invigorating exploration of trauma, celebrity, modern mass media, and the disintegration of self present therein all three

day-after thoughts:

but all you really need to know is that natalie portman is a better pop star than most actual pop stars, and thanks to sia her songs actually slap (sorry ally)

current thoughts:

this is the lonely island "natalie raps" music video as feature film
